Mexican Burnished Clay Mother and Child Oaxacan Sculpture Mixtec Ceramic



Maricela Gómez López, a hardworking mother and artist portrays her life through her work. Living and growing up in Santo Domingo Yanhuitlán, a small town in central Mexico, the role of women as mothers and providers has and is part of the local culture. This serene work portraits the bond a mother creates with her child while breastfeeding and demonstrates the accustomed view towards it. With natural pigments Gómez gives a natural, rustic, and calm tone to the sculpture.

About The Maker

At ATENTICA we seek out quietly successful artisans, designers, and artists mainly in Mexico. Here you can discover great artwork from isolated towns and places who have kept their traditions while innovating to bring the best techniques with a modern approach. At ATENTICA we are currently focusing on our second generation of artists, seeking techniques that are in danger of being lost due to the lack of artists and artisans who still practice them.
